Cory Doctorow: The Totalitarian Urge: total information awareness and the cosmic billiards


Published March 8, 2007


Lecture presented by the SFU Faculty of Applied Sciences’ Leonardo Institute.
“It’s about how technology changes the way we view social problems,” says Doctorow. “Older mechanical technologies make us see the world as deterministic, knowable and manipulable. New emergent technologies like the Internet teach us that control is an illusion, the universe is out of control and laughing at us, and that the more we watch and control, the more problems we have.”
